  The keyboard comes in a box which contains three short leaflets explaining how to replace the keyboard for the ThinkPad R60, T60 and Z60 series. But no such guide for the ThinkPad 500.

  Turn the notebook around and remove the battery from the backside. There are five screws only to open to get the keyboard replaced. No need to open the case completely. All these screws are marked with a small keyboard icon besides the scre hole.
